I bought a little package of elbow macaroni from a Mexican company - La Moderna.
It has been so long since I made macaroni I had to read to instructions ... bring water to boil add mac ... or add mac, bring to boil ... how long?
Their instructions are to add it to boiling soup broth and cook for 11 minutes
Then they went on to say that macaroni may be fried before adding to soup.
Why would someone do that? Have you ever fried macaroni?
